If, like me, you have always wanted to touch Pompon's Ours Blanc, then now's your chance. The real thing is, of course, in the Musee D'Orsay in almost a room of it's own; the full size plaster model is in the current exhibition at the Grand Palais celebrating Animal Beauty in art, along with the fondle-it-as-much-as-you-like marquette. Joy!
It's on until 16 July. Details here: http://www.grandpalais.fr/en/News/Current-programme-in-full/p-468-lg1-Current-programme-in-full.htm
